The Holy Hieromartyr Paphnutius
All that is known concerning this Saint is that he was a bishop and that he suffered many torments by fire, the sword, and wild beasts.
Apolytikion of Martyr Paphnutius in the Fourth Tone
As a sharer of the ways and a successor to the throne of the Apostles, O inspired of God, thou foundest discipline to be a means of ascent to divine vision. Wherefore, having rightly divided the word of truth, thou didst also contest for the Faith even unto blood, O Hieromartyr Paphnutius. Intercede with Christ our God that our souls be saved.
